KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) U.S. Olympic gold medalist Bridgette Gordon, who led Tennessee to two national titles during her playing career, is returning to her alma mater as an assistant coach.
Tennessee coach Holly Warlick announced Gordon's addition to the staff Thursday. The Women's Basketball Hall of Famer fills a spot vacated by the departure of Jolette Law, who left to become an assistant at South Carolina.
"I had always dreamed of being a Lady Vol," Gordon said. "After playing and being part of this rich tradition, I have continued to dream about coming back as a coach and helping Holly continue to add to the Lady Vol legacy."
